More Than a Cone

Cynthia White


I paint portraits of animals.  I am head over heals in love with my two dogs Jack and Davey.  I cherish my husband.  I like to sweat while gleaning fields with other people who do other things for a living.  I have assisted in creating a mural with sixth graders in Japan.  I have skied the Alps in Austria.  I have danced with children in Haiti.  Cats and dogs have selected me and my husband to be their foster parents.  I have sat in silence watching a child devour a banana for the first time at age 10.  I have taught English in an orphanage and school in Thailand.  I loved running the ASPCA 1/2 marathon.

Currently, I teach the art of drawing and painting to children in Los Angeles. Children teach me about being a better artist and person.
